  • @Gopays25, you will see from reading the threads on this issue that we can't give you a definite answer about this as people are banned from South Korea for different periods of time depending on their infringement. You could be banned for anything …
  • Hi Joseph, I'm afraid you will need a visa. And your passport should be valid for the duration of your stay. If you are going to complete a course of study it should be fairly easy to get a visa - just ask the school you're attending to send you an …
  • @sush1631 Alethia replied to your duplicate post in another thread I think. The point she is trying to make is that we have no way of predicting whether you will be granted your visa or not. We can offer advice before application but once the applic…
  • If you intend to stay in Australia as long as your visa is valid then perhaps you should just book a flight now for the last week or so that the visa is active. You will have to leave by then anyway. Many airlines offer flexible tickets for a price …
  • @feranza, while you would be cutting it too fine for many destinations, New Zealanders only require a valid passport to enter Australia, with no additional validity period thereafter. It is good that your passport is valid for the duration of your t…
  • Hi MJ18, I assume you're Malaysian? The return ticket rule is often a requirement of getting a visa in the first place so the fact that you already have a visa is a good start. You may not need the return ticket - I can't see any specific rule about…
  • Hi @abhijit04in, That single entry visa allows you a single entry to the Schengen zone, including all countries in that zone. You will be absolutely fine travelling between France, Hungary and Austria, and any other Schengen country in the same holi…
  • Please do post an update once you have returned @SidRead. The only place I have been in Zimbabwe in the last decade is Vic Falls, which is rumbling along much the same as ever. I would be very interested to hear how you find Harare.
  • Hi FreddyJ, If you are British Citizens then your daughter should be fine to travel. All British Citizens need for travel to France is passport validity for the duration of their stay. Enjoy!
  • Hi Alethia. If you look back you will see that Stuart said he was British, but not that he was a British Citizen and I advised him that if he was a British Citizen he would not need any period of validity beyond his travels. Which is the same thing …
  • I'm afraid I agree with Alethia, @cheerful1944. This sounds like a classic romance scam.
  • Thanks for that Alethia. I am fully aware. Stuart didn't state what endorsement his passport carries and the rules vary depending on endorsement so I felt it was safe to tell him that at most he would need three months, but if he is a British citize…
  • You won't have any problem then. Those carrying British passports require at most three months validity on their passports to enter Spain. If you are a British Citizen you only need your passport to be valid for the period of intended stay. Enjoy yo…
  • Hi Stuart, what is your nationality? I need to know that to be sure I'm giving you the right information.
  • Hi Greg, I haven't personally been to Portugal (sadly!) but I think this free Portugal Travel Guide will be a big help. It includes summaries of many of the most popular resorts. Hopefully somebody with more personal experience will come along to ad…
  • You shouldn't have any problem @pranshulink. Your Schengen visa is valid for the whole Schengen zone regardless of which country issued it.
  • Hi Amber, You don't say where exactly you're going or what your interests are, but hopefully this free New Zealand Travel Guide will give you some ideas and inspiration. If you have more specific questions let us know.
  • Okay interesting. So I guess it depends on whether you need to travel or not in the next six months or so - if you will be travelling you need to renew your passport, if not don't bother. As Alethia says though, there are lots of hoops to be jumped …
  • This is a classic scam @bostonter - I would advise just cutting contact now.
  • You're trying to apply for UK citizenship @fiz22? I'm not sure what exactly the rule is for passport validity but I will say that the process for becoming a UK citizen is time-consuming even if you fulfill all the stringent requirements - you won't …
  • I'm not sure about Belgium being one of the stricter countries in the Schengen zone, but as I understand it appealing isn't a good idea for any of the Schengen countries. Rather make a fresh application, even if it is to the same embassy. Why did th…
  • Hi there. Looks like South Africans can get a visa on arrival in Uganda for USD 100, provided they can show proof of sufficient funds for their stay and an onward or return ticket out of the country. They will probably also ask that you provide an a…
  • Yeah, I'm thinking something other than the children question must have been the problem... maybe if she gives us more to go on.
  • I'm afraid you will have to contact the embassy - we cannot know why they haven't yet been granted their visas. Especially without knowing any details. What nationality are you and your friends, and what kind of visa were you applying for?
  • @haidee please let us know some more details? What is your nationality? Where exactly are you travelling and why (tourism or business) and why were you denied? That is, what did they say when your submission was denied? Without knowing these details…
  • @mariaaleta It would help us if you could let us know what documents you did include in your application so that we can see what you could add second time around. You are correct about re-applying instead of appealing!
  • @Rad, Japan is a wonderful tourism destination. Luckily the fairly compact nature of the country means that you can visit a number of cities and attractions without wasting too much time travelling. Check out this free Japan Travel Guide for some id…
  • @MaggieMay, if you are a British citizen you don't need a Schengen visa.
  • Hi fawad, Pakistani citizens require a passport valid for six months beyond period of intended stay in Ivory Coast, and a visa. Nationals from countries which don't have an Ivory Coast Embassy can usually obtain visas on arrival so long as they are…
